Trevi Fountain

Trevi Fountian

The name ‘Trevi’ means ‘three-ways’ and is said to refer to the junction of three roads on Piazza dei Cruciferi. There was also a famous Goddess named Trivia. She protected the streets of Rome and had three heads so she could see everything going on around her.  She would always stand on the corners where three streets met.

Colosseum, Rome


The Colosseum is listed as one of the New7Wonders of the World.

There are two facts impressed me mostly after visiting this tourist object.

This huge and complicated engineering construction has been built just in seven years. The Colosseum is an immense work of engineering, and needed professional, skilled workers. Slaves would only have been used in the quarries to quarry the stone needed.

Nowadays we can see just skeleton of that beautiful masterpiece. It happened not just because of time and nature disasters but people. All the numerous statues and marble tiles from exterior and interior decor have been robbed by Romans to build their own palaces. Even Vatican took place in that robbery.

Only one’s imagination can draw the real view of this Architectural, Engineering and Art Masterpiece.

Notre Dame – in memory and in heart!

Notre-Dame de Paris

Heartbreaking news came from Paris today! There is no anymore Notre Dame like we saw it lately. Hard to imagine if it is possible to revive it again. Probably yes. However it will not be the same anymore. Lucky us to had an opportunity to see it in its magnificence and keep in our memory and heart forever!

Rainforest Cafe

Niagara Falls is not only beautiful Nature attraction but the small town on a bank of Niagara river right beside of Falls. As the tourist town, it is full of different kind of attractions, souvenir stores, restaurants, cafes, bars, etc. However, among all of the places to get food, there is a really special one and it is Rainforest Cafe.
 
In tourist season it takes time to stay in the line to get in but it worth to do so. There is a huge aquarium in the foyer with numerous kind of fish and even shark to make the waiting time are not boring. There is a bar where you can take coffee, beer, wine to shorten the waiting.

This cafe influences not only children but adults too. You appear to get in the middle of the jungle with rain, different kind of animals, and noise. Everything is moving and sounds. There are monkeys hanging on the trees, parrots yelling from the branches, panthers hiding in the bushes and even full-size elephant sounds like a trumpet.

It is almost real rain forest
